Recording Journal: Day 14 – Guitars, Keyboards

Oh hi there!

Yesterday Trevor and I began working on another song for American Buffalo, “Tuba Roses”. I had originally demoed the song with a lot of guitars, with a fairly organic sound. After beginning the official recording however, we started playing around with replacing a lot of those guitar parts with synths, and liked the results. We did keep a lot of the higher guitar parts and the leads during the choruses. I used the Boss DD6 Delay for a lot of the leads, which gave the guitars a nice sheen to match the synths. I also used the Fender ’72 Telecaster Thinline into Trevor’s Marshall JCM 2000.

After that Trevor and I began adding more synth parts with Chelsey’s Alesis Micron. Trevor added some organ to the choruses and then the three of us called it a night so that we could make gorditas (which were basically just glorified soft tacos; looking at you Old El Paso) and watching Comedy Central. Chelsey also made those peanut butter cookies with the Hershey Kisses in the middle. Recording rules.
